Our values

We rally around five key values that define our culture. We embrace leadership, authenticity, mentorship, and a bias toward action while always putting our mission first.

Own it

We are accountable and always act in the best interest of our business. When we experience setbacks, we dig in harder and rally the team. We never say, “that’s not my job.”

Live it

We choose purpose in every aspect of our lives and are committed to driving positive environmental impact in every business decision we make. We are unwavering optimists who believe in the power of our connected movement.

Study it

We are relentlessly curious and seek to improve ourselves every day. We look for new ideas everywhere. We are humble in acknowledging what we don’t know. We believe iteration is the best form of invention.

Coach it

We light a fire within others, not under them. As coaches, we help our teams to push the limits of possibility and performance. We foster trust by getting to know each other as individuals.

Crush it

We have a bias toward action and realize that high performance takes grit and commitment. We are willing to fail in pursuit of audacious goals. We never compromise high standards for the sake of keeping the peace.

Benefits and perks

We take care of our team so they can focus on the customer—and the planet.

Flexible PTO

For our teams to do their best work, we make sure they have time to recharge. We offer Inspire employees flexible vacation, sick, and mental health days.

Healthy benefits

Inspire offers a variety of medical, dental and vision plans.

Dog-friendly workplace

Both of our offices welcome pups⏤just keep an eye on your lunch!

Open floorplan

Our workspaces are kept open to encourage collaboration and creativity.

Option grants

We empower our employees to take part in ownership of the company.

Coach it corner

Our take on a traditional lunch and learn where fellow team members motivate, educate, and engage with one another.

Not just a job

We show up to work each day ready to combat climate change and create a seamless clean energy experience for our customers. We believe that with passion, purpose, risk taking, and lesson learning, we can make a positive impact on the world.
